Packages in python are similar to packages in other languages like Java, or namespaces in C#. In Python they are just folders with a special file called a dunderscore init. A dunderscore is a double underscore, so dunderscore init looks like __init__. Once created you can use python modules to organize and segregate your code which honors the separation of concerns principle as well as other programming idioms like the single responsibility principle and don't repeat yourself (DRY).
- [Instructor] With our first successful run out the way,…I'm going to go ahead and stub out the rest of the project.…We're just going to add some code files…in here, we just need a few.…And then we'll have everything…that we need to finish the project.…For the other two Python scripts,…I'm going to put these inside of a Python package.…A Python package, if you're not familiar with them,…is just like a package in any other language.…So Java has packages, C Sharp has name spaces,…most languages have some form of packaging…that allows you to create organized code.…
And so let's right-click on page spider.…We'll create a new Python package…and there's nothing truly magical about a Python package.…It's really just a folder with special file inside of it.…I'm going to call my package utilities.…And click okay.…And here its created out utilities package…and there's the special file that I promised you.…There's nothing in it, it's just a underscore…in it dot Py file that defines this folder…as a Python package.…
I'll go ahead and close this since I don't need…
